    Dear All,

    I called in to get the results of a CRP test done. The secretary (talking via nurse) said that I had a 5.0 which is normal. I then asked the normal range of test and she said 0 to 22. Didn't get the measurements like (mg/l).

    Does above make sense? Others here say 5.0 and above is bad....Maybe that is another test.

    ...when studying Naturopathy, I was taught that any CRP is bad...it should be Zero.
    I know conventional medicine says under 5 is OK. Mine is under 5, but they didn't tell me how far under, and I have Metabolic Syndrome, so I think it's important to know. I am asking to have the "ultrasensitive CRP" test next time, and will report if I learn anything new about how this works.
    BTW, digestive enzymes between meals, esp. pancreatin and bromelain and eating lots of raw garlic can help get that inflammation down naturally (and keep vampires away!). :)
